Interaction Between Frailty and Access Site in Older Adults Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

The authors sought to determine whether frail older adults undergoing nonfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures had a higher risk of 30-day and 12-month mortality.

A novel Geriatric Assessment frailty score predicts two-year mortality after Transcatheter Aortic Valve implantation.

Established surgical scores have limitations in delineating risk among candidates for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Assessment of frailty might help estimate themortality risk and id...

Comparison of balloon-expandable vs. self-expandable valves in patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation: from the CENTER-collaboration.

The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes of patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with balloon-expandable (BE) valves vs. self-expandable (SE) v...

Validation of STS/ACC TVT-TAVR Score in Veterans Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) transcatheter valve therapy (TVT) transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) score was developed to predict in-hospital m...

Degree of valve calcification in patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation with and without balloon aortic valvuloplasty: Findings from the multicenter EASE-IT TF registry.

We aimed to assess whether the level of aortic root calcification is associated with BAV performance/omission during transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), and to explore related outcomes.

TriGuard Embolic Deflection Device to Reduced Impact of Cerebral Embolic Lesions After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

The Keystone Heart TriGuard™ device is an aortic embolism deflection device intended to reduce the amount of embolic material that may enter the carotid, subclavian, and vertebral arteri...

Mini-invasive Balloon Aortic Valvuloplasty

The spreading of transcatheter aortic valve implantation has paradoxically increased the spectrum of indications for balloon aortic valvuloplasty. Balloon aortic valvuloplasty is currently...

International Multisite Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Therapies Registry

For a long time, tricuspid valve disease has been considered as less important than left-sided valvular heart disease. If treated in an advanced stage and simultaneously with other cardiac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.

A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System.

Treatments which are undergoing clinical trials or for which there is insufficient evidence to determine their effects on health outcomes; coverage for such treatments is often denied by health insurers.

A nursing specialty that deals specifically with the care of patients undergoing diagnostic, neurological, cardiovascular, interventional, ultrasonography, computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, radiation oncology or other related procedures .

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
